Thanks for responding. By template, I meant the one I used to build my site, but now somehow I was able to submit my sitemap to Google, just stumbled on how to do it. Had to go to different links and found it. After submitting, it initially was pending, but now they say I have a parsing error. Not sure why. All I had to do, as far as I could tell, was type in the URL to my site. Did it without the backslash at first, and they couldn't accept it, but then I added it (/) and they accepted the submission.
Well, after I got the parsing error, I resubmitted my site, with everything the same as the first time. So now I guess I have to wait until tomorrow morning to see what happens, because it takes several hours. If they still say there's a parsing error, maybe I'll have to have them generate a new code for me, or try to figure out what's wrong with the one they initially gave me.
My fingers are crossed. Will let you know if problem gets solved. But one quick question, if you don't mind. Within the code they gave me, besides the link to my site, it shows links to my various pages. Even though I only had to submit the actual site URL, all the pages will be crawled, right? Will revisit you in the morning. Thanks so much!
